Help request for an old chat addon

Hi there,

I Recently rediscovered an addon I was using back in the day which sadly hasn't been updated for a while
and thereby leaving it nonfunctional.
The purpose of the addon is to change the chatframe's height (maximize and minimize) when a new message
appears in the chat.

Following error is thrown:

Code:
Message: Interface\AddOns\Chicchai\core.lua:117: attempt to index local 'self' (a nil value)
Time: 08/29/17 23:15:52

I've tried applying my limited coding skill but that didn't get me anywhere.
Any help is appreciated.

Currently only having a semi working version of it (only one of two frames are moving) as such posting here to see if someone has a fix (almost sounds like an addiction lol)
